Women and weight training do not seem to go together in the same sentence purely and simply because of the images that are associated with women that weigh train. Many women believe that it involves lifting weight after weight and develop huge muscles but this is not the case. These myths need to be dispelled in order for women to see the health benefits of weight training.

Many women that do weight training do not have to actually lift weights to complete weight training exercises. It simply involves using your muscles. When you use your muscles, you burn more calories and can achieve a firmer and leaner body. This can actually result in you looking younger because the more toned you are, the better your body tends to look. Your arms, legs and stomach can become more defined and make you appear extremely fit! But how can you actually achieve this?

Backpain can continue to plague you and make your life miserable long after you have recovered from the initial back injury. Even if the back problems are recent, do not expect instant results from any back exercise. Introducing the third qigong/chi kung lesson for eliminating backpain and building a strong healthy back.

For chronic pain to develop, it takes more than just one injury to result in a weak back, but a lifetime of poor posture and bad habits. Fortunately, qigong/chi kung can produce relatively fast results, usually within several months of regular practice. The qigong/chi kung horse stance is no exception.

If at first you have difficulty with the qigong/chi kung horse stance and find that the backs of your thighs and buttocks are tight instead of relaxed, go back to the first lesson sitting down. (It is easier to relax them when you are sitting down).

A large factor contributing to hypertension is stress, and any healthy lifestyle has to include solutions to reducing stress in our lives. Besides getting adequate, regular sleep and rest, there is one other way to reduce mental, emotional and physical stress.

Qigong (a.k.a. chi kung) is an excellent way to reduce stress. One reason is because it provides a physical workout and another reason is that qigong involves yogic meditation — an opportunity to relax mentally and remove ourselves for an hour or two from the daily stresses so prevalent in modern society.

There are many kinds of qigong meditation. The more well-known types include moving meditation such as tai chi chuan. There is also the still type of meditation known as jinggong in Chinese. With still meditation, we can meditate standing up, sitting down and even lying down.
